WTF Moments From President Trump’s Weird Press Conference

“Russia is fake news,” claimed President Donald Trump during his very crazy and weird press conference Thursday afternoon. Trump came fully prepared – at least he thought- and delivered a rather hastily press conference to the shock of many.

It was almost as if Trump just woke up Thursday morning and thought, “you know what would be a great idea? Lets have a press conference and i’ll let them as me anything they would like!”

Reporters were shocked, as they typically would have a conference with White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

While the event was obviously orchestrated in order to roll out his new labor of secretary nominee, Trump clearly overshadowed his new labor secretary announcement with his own rather typical crazy antics of his own.

Here are some WTF moments from President Trumps weird spontaneous press conference. 

Everything is just fake news in Trumps eyes

“The leaks are absolutely real. The news is fake because so much of the news is fake.”

That time he couldn’t say Flynn lied

“The thing is, he didn’t tell our vice president properly, and then he said he didn’t remember … that just wasn’t acceptable to me.”

That time he wanted us to believe the rollout of his ‘travel ban’ went “smooth”

“We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban; we had a bad court.”

That time he claimed that the entire country of Russia is just a pile of “fake news”…. because everything is “fake news.”

“Russia is fake news. Russia, this is fake news put out by the media. The real news is the fact that people, probably from the Obama administration because they’re there – because we have our new people going in place… right now.”

That time he claimed he hasn’t made a phone call to Russia in years and therefore has no knowledge on if his team colluded with Russia during his campaign

“Nobody that I know of. How many times do I have to answer this question? Russia is a ruse. I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven’t made a phone call to Russia in years.”

That time he believed he wasn’t a bad person…

“And I’ll tell you what else I see. I see tone. You know the word ‘tone’? The tone is such hatred. I’m really not a bad person, by the way. No, but the tone is such – I do get good ratings, you have to admit that – the tone is such hatred.”

That time he thought that drugs and candy are the same price

“We’ve ordered the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice to coordinate on a plan to destroy criminal cartels coming into the United States with drugs. We’re becoming a drug-infested nation. Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”

That time he needed to assert his manhood, and remind us that he could shoot the Russian vessel lurking off the East coast of the United States.

“The greatest thing I could do [politically] is shoot that ship that’s 30 miles offshore right out of the water.”

That time he insulted everyone in the room

“I’m not ranting and raving. I’m just telling you you’re dishonest people.”

That time he started to regret this spontaneous press conference

“I want to find a friendly reporter.”

That time he made Twitter and Facebook almost crash by claiming the Nuclear Holocaust would be like no other.

“Nuclear holocaust would be no like no other. They’re a very powerful nuclear country and so are we.”

The Twitterverse Explodes

Trump’s media conference clearly didn’t go as planned and has in fact rather started a even bigger uproar against the President of the United States.

The massive social media sites Twitter and Facebook both nearly crashed during Trump’s conference and it was mostly due to the massive amount of negative tweets or posts against the President.

Watch the first full trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther

The first full trailer for Marvel’s Black Panther is here, and it gives us a better look at the world of Wakanda, where T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) is the newly crowned king. In the trailer, we see Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), as he attempts to dethrone the Black Panther, plus lots of slow-motion, aerial views, and tight spandex. Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) reminds the Black Panther, “You get to decide what kind of king you are going to be.”

Directed by Ryan Coogler, Black Panther is a highly anticipated addition to Marvel’s cinematic slate, and it’s the first Marvel film to feature a predominately black cast.

Black Panther comes out on February 16th, 2018.

Jigsaw Trailer Recaps The Saw Franchise

Jigsaw Trailer Recaps The Saw Franchise

 

A new trailer for Jigsaw gives fans and newcomers alike a refresher course on the series so far. The Saw franchise was a staple for horror fans every Halloween in the mid to late 2000s, until the series seemingly called it quits with The Final Chapter back in 2010. The Saw movies revolved around the exploits of John Kramer, a man diagnosed with a terminal illness who decides to use the time he has left to kidnap victims and test them to see how much they value their lives.

He would place inside vicious, themed traps, where they would usually have to shed some blood – or limbs – to survive; most of them didn’t. The series is one of the few horror franchises that paid close attention to continuity, with each sequel building on characters and plot revelations from the previous entry. By the time the series reached part seven, though, the story had gotten too convoluted for many, and it felt like Saw had run out of steam by the time The Final Chapter opened in theaters.

Jigsaw aims to revive the series once more, and a new trailer has appeared that quickly recaps the first seven Saw movies, and explains Kramer’s motivations and philosophy. The new sequel follows a fresh batch of victims being tested – and tormented – by the legendary Jigsaw… which should be impossible, since John Kramer died in Saw III.

It will be interesting to see if Jigsaw does well, since audiences seemed burnt out on the series back when The Final Chapter was released. The Saw franchise belongs to an era of horror commonly known as “torture porn”, which typically featured victims being graphically tortured and dismembered. Other movies from this subgenre including the Hostel films, The Collector and Wolf Creek; and while they proved profitable for a few years, their inherent nastiness soon turned most viewers off.

The original Saw was actually more of a taut thriller with little in the way of gore, and this new entry appears to be playing up the mystery of who exactly is behind the new tests. Jigsaw may have also lucked out in terms of timing since horror is experiencing a real boon right now. IT is now one of the highest grossing horror movies of all time, and Blumhouse is having a great year thanks to films like Happy Death Day, Split and Get Out.

With Pennywise emerging as a new horror icon, and the forthcoming Halloween reboot bringing Michael Myers back to life, maybe there’s room after all for Jigsaw in the modern horror scene.

Fox & Friends Loses It Over Female Thomas The Tank Engine Characters (VIDEO)

Fox & Friends Loses It Over Female Thomas The Tank Engine Characters (VIDEO)

 

Taking a break from trying to remember whether or not President Donald Trump ever admitted to committing sexual assault, the hosts of Fox & Friends turned their shrieking ire to a new target: children’s cartoon Thomas and Friends.

Specifically, it is Thomas and Friends’ addition of two female characters that have ruffled the F&F feathers. Host Pete Hegseth really kicked things off with this brilliant observation, sputtering as he tried to string together an argument.:

“Traditionally, boys have probably loved trains and girls probably do too. But there are more boy engines than girl engines. They’re balancing it out. They’re getting rid of two of the males and replacing them with female trains, one from Africa. And then the other changes — they are going to make Thomas more sustainable. He’s going to follow U.N. goals and stop polluting so much, and start being more environmentally friendly.”

This then launches into an argument about allowing “childhood to be childhood,” because, apparently, a show that includes female anthropomorphic train engines is too much for some children to deal with. Male anthropomorphic train engines that love polluting, however, are just fine.

Host David Webb continued to express his concern for our children, trying to clarify his anti-female train stance:

“I’m not against girl or boy trains or any trains. I would like to see a nice high-speed train represented, whatever the case may be. You know, Abby, I just don’t see the agenda being the driver.”

Continue reading below the advertisement.

Third host Abby Huntsman is the lone voice of reason in the discussion, arguing that gender equality in the cartoon train world is okay by her, all while her co-hosts attempt to interrupt her:

“Adding more women faces to trains, as a woman, I think that’s great. Also, clean energy, I’m all for clean energy in this country. I’m all for being more energy independent in this country. So, if this is something to be worried about, I just don’t know if that’s on the top of my list.”

Webb claims that the female trains on Thomas & Friends are “killing childhood.” Huntsman questions that argument, incredulously stating:

“Does that kill childhood, though? Because I know I’m about to have a girl and to read her that book or show her that, I don’t think that ends her childhood.”

Adding women to popular entertainment has long ruffled the skirts of the far right; alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos was booted off Twitter for (among other things) directing his fans to harass actor Leslie Jones, who was starring in the female reboot of Ghostbusters.

Keep in mind that this was a four minute segment on President Trump’s favorite morning news show, and it was discussing if the children of the United States are being indoctrinated because they added female trains to an animated children’s show. Watch the unbelievable exchange below, and especially note Abby Huntsman trying not to laugh in Pete Hegseth’s face as he introduces the segment:
